Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration. 

Poached Tuna, Part II: this is another easy-to-assemble lunch. On the bottom of the containers I put pea tendrils. Please don't hate on me for this high-falutin' ingredient -- our grocery store sells them in a convenient package! Any kind of greens will do. I was going to use arugula but was too lazy to clean it. On the tendrils, I made a pile of poached tuna and laid down a few avocado wedges. The dressing that tied it all together was lime juice, a large pinch of ground cumin, salt, sliced garlic scape, and olive oil. On the side, a rice cracker that was surely ignored in favor of a Tate's chocolate chip cookie!

Amanda do the twins really eat their glorious lunches? Do they trade them, ditch them, love them, give you reviews? My kids were so unwilling to explore until much later. #envy.

They happily eat this kind of food at home (we just finished a dinner of linguine with clams and strawberry shortcake) -- however, I'm sure at school it's a different story. I know they eat most of the lunches, and I hear it when they don't like something, but I'm sure some lunches are traded/ignored!

Yum. Nice use of a garlic scape too.
